Ambiorix Burgos Sentenced
Former Mets reliever Ambiorix Burgos has been sent to jail — though it may not be for what you think.
Although the former flamethrower inadvertently (or intentionally) ran over and killed two human beings with his Hummer in the Dominican Republic last fall, he is actually being sentenced for beating his girlfriend in a Queens hotel a few weeks earlier.
His current wife — who is not the aforementioned girlfriend — wrote a letter to the judge claiming that Burgos is “a good husband”. Burgos and his wife have been married for about a month.
“The fact that he hasn’t hit his wife in a month is hardly a ringing endorsement,” said Assistant DA Kelly Sessoms-Newton.
No word on when or if Burgos will face charges for murder / vehicular manslaughter in his native country.
